This should have actually been in last weeks TWTW but I didn’t really do one. Two Tuesdays ago I woke up and found this on my arm.
My boss ordered us new laptops at work. If you know anything about nerds you know how much we love new tech. I was so excited I kept checking the shipping and IT people to see if they had come in. Finally on Wednesday a pile of 5 laptop boxes appeared. My coworker and I grabbed our laptops and ran gleefully back to our office. We opened the boxes and started checking them out. Something wasn’t right. These laptop were frankly kinda crappy. They were not nearly as good as what we were promised. I looked at the model number and a realization slowly started to dawn on me. These weren’t our laptops… we had stolen some other laptops. You put everything back.. Turned out our order of laptops wasn’t coming in until next week.
Monday was memorial day here in the USA, so I had the day off. One of the first things I did that day was go for a jog. That impressed me since usually I am not in the mood to do anything in the morning. The weather had listed a slight chance of some rain in the afternoon. It was sunny most of the day and the cat lay out on the balcony. A few clouds were about. A few more clouds were about. Suddenly there came a crash of thunder and it started to pour. Jobu bolted inside in terror. It rained and rained.
On Tuesday I finally finished a long term project I had been working on. I felt very relieved when it mostly all worked right. Just about the time to leave work the clouds rolled in again. I might have never seen rain like this in my life. It poured and poured and poured. I believe they said we got 2 inches in an hour. Streets were flooded everywhere. It took my double the time to get home.
When I woke up on Saturday, a nice steady rain was falling. It wasn’t a complete downpour but a good solid rain. Being the fool I am I decided to go for a nice long walk. I got soaked, which was fine. I don’t know If I have mentioned it on here before, but I have been doing some extra work on the side. I like to do this work when I can at the office since I like my setup there. About noon I drive out to the office. Instead of getting down to work I decide to go for a walk around the now deserted and rainy campus to take pictures. When I finally got to the office I found an email about my actual day job. So I did about an hours worth of work on that. By this time it was about 2 pm. I found myself suddenly very tired and with a mild headache. I couldn’t concentrate. With nobody around, I decided to take a short 1/2 hour nap on the couch. I lay down, got comfy, and drifted away. I woke up a half hour later. I rolled over and lay there a minute with my eyes closed, just to help me wake up.. and then I could get started with this couch is surprisingly comfy… i’m just gonna…. ZZZZzzzzzZZZZ
I woke up two and half hour later and realized it was time to go to the gym.
